Apom or pancake is a delicious savoury fancied by everyone. Locals surely know about Apom Guan, this is a famous apom stall in Penang (located in front of the Union Primary School) at Jalan Burmah. Sometimes, I will be jealous of the primary students there because they get a chance to have "daily affairs" with apoms.
This apom stall is named after the owner, Mr Uan Cheng Guan, who has been selling apom for a few decades. He has lots of loyal customers and I had been asked to wait for at least 15 minutes to get my 20 pieces of apom(my worst experience is 40mins of waiting,haha). If you are waiting by the stall, you will be surprised that most people will order at least 30-70 pieces of apom at a time. That's why I have to wait such a long time for mine.
Nowadays, the prices of things have gone up very shockingly. However, you may get the chance to enjoy these temping apoms at only RM0.30 per piece. Cheap isn't it?!
The apom is made of a batter that comprises flour, corn, bananas, eggs and Mr. Guan's secret recipe.
